West Star Aviation is now offering landing gear overhaul and repair for a variety of airframes from its recently expanded Chattanooga facility in Tennessee. The location also houses an accessory and component shop, allowing West Star to broaden its continued support for Embraer Phenom 100 and Phenom 300, King Air and Learjet (excluding 40 series) for landing gear inspections and overhaul services plus wheel and battery services. Its full-service offering also includes a new state-of-the-art paint facility featuring custom cross and down drafts for precise application.

“With the larger facility, we are able to expand our market presence and services to our customers while continuing our proven success for landing gear repair and overhaul, along with performing any other maintenance requirements at the same time,” says general manager Steve Goede. “With each added capability, we are able to provide our customers the convenience of a one-stop shop.”
